NW Denver Book Exchange
September 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
This book-for-book community event started 10 years ago, and we’re not letting a little pandemic stop us! For safety, we are hosting this event outdoors at the BookGive Service Station, 4890 Lowell Blvd.
Only 10 individuals will be allowed into the book exchange for each half hour shopping period. Every person in your party must have their own ticket for entry.
Tickets are free. Reserve your tickets here –> https://www.eventbrite.com/e/10th-annual-northwest-denver-community-book-exchange-sep-7th-tickets-117850872131
We cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, comics, and damaged or heavily annotated books. All attendees, staff and volunteers will be required to wear masks while they are on the property. Due to the fact that people may be touching various books, gloves and hand sanitizer will be provided. Please keep this in mind when considering obtaining a ticket for anyone who may not be capable of keeping gloves on throughout the event.
At check-in, we’ll count how many books you brought. You can then shop for that number of new-to-you books. For example, if you bring five books, you can take five books. Want to take more? No problem! You can make a financial donation to our nonprofit. There will be TONS of books on tables outside the service station. The books available will have been processed more than 24 hours prior, the amount of time recommended by the CDC and the Institute for Library and Museum Services. Attendees will be reminded upon entry to remain physically distanced while shopping.
BookGive is a Denver nonprofit dedicated to literacy by delivering curated book collections to schools, nonprofits and agencies through Denver metro. Your support makes it possible for us to get the right books to the right people. This event is free, however your financial donations are always welcome.
